2016 - 2021 SACNAS Strategic Plan


Achieving True Diversity in STEM. #TrueDiversity means that the field (including leadership positions) accurately and proportionately reflects the demographics of the population.


SACNAS is an inclusive organization dedicated to fostering the success of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans, from college students to professionals, in attaining advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in STEM.

Our Plan.

The 2016-2021 SACNAS strategic plan is a platform to drive change, broaden our network, and strengthen opportunities for our members.

SACNAS will:

Be PROACTIVE: We will have a strong infrastructure to pursue strategic directions and act on opportunities and partnerships.

Have A STRONG NATIONAL VOICE: SACNAS has the opportunity, experience, and expertise to serve as a central thought leader in the STEM diversity movement.  

Have LARGE-SCALE IMPACT: Over the course of our 40+ year history, SACNAS has changed lives. We have opened the doors of opportunity and access to thousands of students and professionals by helping build their confidence, introducing them to a network of mentors, and creating space for them to learn about graduate schools and careers. Now it is time to turn this individual impact into large scale impact, creating a critical mass of STEM leaders from underrepresented communities.
